Where to even begin with this wedding . . . just under two years ago Grace contacted me with a query around my wedding packages, little did I know when we first started chatting that they would be jetting me off to Spain to capture THE most stunning wedding in the Granada mountains or that we would end up becoming great friends. This was one of the most beautiful and emotional weddings I have yet to shoot from the personally written vows to the multilingual speeches, it was a true honour to be able to witness let alone photograph. I will treasure the memories of this wedding for many years! Oh and by the way . . . abroad weddings are my new favourite thing 😉
Last month I had the absolute pleasure of travelling all the way to Thailand for an intimate wedding of two of my closest friends. It always feel like added pressure when a friend asks me to do their wedding photography, I’m not sure why as I would always want to provide the highest standard of photos that I can but I do always feel extra nervous. Anyway, the trip was beyond incredible, we took complete advantage of the opportunity and stayed out there for 2 weeks visiting Bangkok, Koh Samui and Koh Tao.
The wedding took place smack bang in the middle of the trip in Koh Samui in the most stunning and luxurious hotel, Sereeraya Villas and Suites, Chaweng Beach. The wedding day itself started out with bright sunshine and scorching heat…unfortunately the weather took a turn and we ended up with a tropical thunderstorm. But, this did not put an dampener on the day (pun intended!) the entire day was still absolutely beautiful and we still got a boogie in the sand later in the evening when the rain had stopped. Hope you enjoy the photos as much as I enjoyed taking them!
My final wedding of 2017 was this stunning winter wedding at Ufton Court, Reading. It was beautiful, crisp and freezing cold, the sun shone all day long. Bernadette got herself ready with her bridesmaids and Mum at the stunning De Vere Wokefield Estate before heading to St Mary’s Church to marry the lovely Alex. The reception was all about the yummy winterness with mulled wine reception drinks and baubles for wedding favours, such a lovely way to end a wonderful year of weddings!
This wedding was a two day affair for me, the first being the ceremony and reception at the Armathwaite Hotel in Keswick, Cumbria and then a few days later an evening reception at Hotel Continental in Barrow-in-Furness. I was all in for this wedding and it did not disappoint, a wedding ceremony in front of a HUGE bay window that over looks Lake Bassenthwaite in the Lake District followed by a drinks reception in front of said lake with views to die for, speeches that even I couldn’t hold back the tears for (not that that is any surprise really) and then an evening reception full of lots of kids skidding on their knees on the dance floor and pie and peas! The true northerner in me could not have been more in my comfort zone, although I did somehow manage to miss out on the pie.
